We Will Rock You!
1 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Kind of a disjointed tale with an interesting premise. Geological study is going on on an island. Two men are involved in examining strange minerals that they keep in sample drawers. They seem to be joining to form larger minerals. Also, on a lake nearby, weird lightning is taking place. At one point, the formation of a larger piece of rock allows it to roll off a table and knock a hole in the door of the house. There is danger, of course, but no one seems to understand it. There is a young woman whose job it is to ignore warnings and to act irrationally. Anyway, at some point, the kindly old assistant is trapped by the rocks and killed. The two men set out to find a way to put a stop to the "dune rollers" as they have named them. It's a decent effort but rather random.
